isn't. i don't want to move forward with something that is not working if we can do something about it. and i'm very mindful of the time. and i certainly don't want to be in a situation where we fail to extend the time because i think that we should. but it seems that we might have a little bit of time being october 18th. so just a question for supervisor farrell through the chair. >> and look, i have no problem doing that. i think -- and to me it's going to be a city attorney-driven question how much, because of the voter-approval legislation that we have the ability to amend, besides extension, do you know that off the top of my head? >> off the top of my head i would say that you could expend and if you want to change the composition, you would be doing what supervisor hall said, which is allowing this body to sunset, and then creating a new body. that would provide oversight. now we would have to look into
that, but that is how i think you would proceed. >> so i am happy to look into that, if you want to take it to the next rules committee. no problem. be mindful our last board meeting is in december. mid-december and we have to get through second passage. i'm happy to look into that. i will say off the bat batt if it's a choice of letting it sunset going back to the voters and having a policeman minimum period of time it's not in place i wouldn't be in favor of that. ? >> if it's a choice of having something imperfect or not having something, i would be there with you. through the chair, supervisor hall, if i could ask a question.
supervisor, do you want to add something? ? >> i just wanted to say that your discussion here is right on track. it's really good. i would be willing to work with each one of you, if you want, but i think as opposed to what the city attorney said. the original legislation is what you should look at. it's all there. you don't need to send it back to the voters and try to get that passed again. that ashard deal. look at the original legislation and this will be on track. i would suggest that approach, because trying to eliminate any oversight and getting it back to the voters is a tough way to go. but look at the original legislation. it's all there. whatpaques it not working is the illegality of the way it's been operating. >> which to that point where i was going with it, there was nothing that we'll be able to change, it's more about the
operations of the committee itself. which is fine, and we address it by our suggestions to them. >> supervisor farrell, allowing the revenue bond oversight committee to contract with outside agencies that aren't under the thrum of the controller's office, or the sf puc. that is the key. and because when the city services auditing agency is the watchdog, there is no oversight. >> if i may? >> supervisor, you may very well be correct that in the end legally there is nothing we can do and if that is the case, i don't really want to delay it. but if it's okay i would ask that we continue it until no later than next meeting of the rules committee and then i would be supportive of acting at that point. >> no problem. >> thank you. >> thank you >> thank you. >> okay. so we can make a motion to continue to the next
ruleses committee -- >> that would be november1st. >> let me make a motion to amend putting section 1 in twin items 9 and 10 and making sure to amend thats it is an extension until january 1,2014. >> january 1, 2016. >> we would have a motion to amend and without opposition [ gavel ] and we have a motion to continue this to the next rules committee of november 1st. i'm certainly open to hearing how to make this committee as effective as it can be over the next two weeks and we have the motion and without opposition [ gavel ] at this time i would like to go back to item no. 3.
which is our appointment to graffiti advisory board. mr. city attorney, i think we have a response to that question. >> yes although the legislation doesn't specifically address whether the members have to be legal voting age. this is designated for youth organizations and we agreed to allow for members under 18. >> great. so that is good news. i have already expressed before my support for mr. grgich and it's great to have young people and students representing on any number of issues here in the city, but particularly on our graffiti advisory board. >> supervisor campos is. >> i make a motion to move mr. grgich's nomination forward. if he can sit through our rules committee i think he can do a great job. >> i hope you are not mad at
us for keeping you out of [skao-fplt/] we have a motion and without opposition. thank you. madame clerk are there any other announcements? seeing none, meeting is adjourned. thank you. [ gavel ]
>> hello.
welcome to "culturewire." we are here today with bay area artist jody chanel, and we are here to see the plaza where your piece has just been installed. >> i have been doing large-scale paintings in the galleries and museums, and the idea that in the future, i could do something that would hang out a little bit longer than the duration of the installation the kind of appeal to me. i quickly found out about the san francisco arts commission school and realized there was a pre-qualified school you had to apply to, so i applied to the. >> how long did it take you to develop this work for the plaza? >> this was a fast track project. design development was about a
month. >> let's look at the beautiful mural. i have never seen a mural created on asphalt. >> the heat of the asphalt, a new layer of asphalt. then, these wire rope templates that were fabricated for the line work get laid down and literally stamped into the asphalt, and then everything was hand-painted. >> maybe you could talk about some of the symbolism, maybe starting in the middle and working out. >> [inaudible] the flower of industry. >> it is like a compass. there's an arrow pointing north. >> within the great bear consolation, there are two pointed stars here. they typically lead one to the northstar, otherwise known as polaris.
so i thought it has a layer of theme. >> let's talk about some of the other elements in the peace. we are walking along, and there is a weather vane. there's a sweet little bird hanging on the side. what kind of bird is that? >> [inaudible] the smallest of the gulf species, and it lives around the bay area. >> you want to talk about the types of flour patterns that you send? >> [inaudible] around 1926 or so by the dahlia society. >> what is this bird here? >> that is the california quail. >> coming up here, we had a little blustery theme. what is this area here? >> this is supposed to be the
side view, the expense of the golden gate bridge. >> there it is. >> there are really beautiful elements of architecture still around, i would say that it gives that feeling over to the work. >> what are your hopes for it? >> that in a way it just becomes part of the area. i think it is starting to have that feeling. people utilize it. they sit and, and have their lunch and play on -- they sit and, and have their lunch and play on that -- they sit and come and have their lunch and play on it. just for it to be part of the neighborhood. that is my hope. >> is such a beautiful addition to our public art in san francisco. thank you for joining us. it was nice to meet you. and thank you for telling us about your beautiful
